What is the Google Android?
Previously thought of as the Gphone (Google Phone), the Google Android is an open source platform for cellulars. It allows outside developers to create software that may be used on our cell phones. Google recently also launched Open Social, an open source platform for social networks.
Instead of me trying to explain all of its abilities and features, the video below is visually informative, for Sergey Brin and Steve Horowitz of Google explain this themselves. They present different features such as: the Quake game, Google Maps, and chat.
In addition, Sergey also informs the viewers of the incentive for developers; Google has put $10 Million aside to pay developers which create the best applications using the Google Android. I have faith that we will be seeing some wonderful applications, with and without this money tag.
